If things were different, if Mieszko hadn't died, Nasum would have celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2012, believe it or not. Therefore, and after long deliberation and scrutiny, we have decided that it's now or never: Nasum will do a handful of shows and festival gigs around the world in 2012 - to celebrate our anniversary, say a final goodbye to the fans and Mieszko. No cheesy reunion, no new albums, no epitaph for Mieszko. We will play only a few cities and festivals in a limited number of disruptive, unruly concerts. It will be a total blast, and we aim to go out hard. Just you wait.
It is doubtful the most extreme end of the musical spectrum has ever possessed such a transfixing dichotomy as BRUTAL TRUTH. The band progressed with boundless enthusiasm through the primal fury of traditional grindcore and hardcore punk. They attacked suffocating city life on the edge of the 21st century and its media noise overload with the bare-knuckled forcefulness of passion, conviction and a... simple love for playing music. They created chaos with a surgical precision and finesse unmatched by their peers.
Face ripping and riff driven, "Poison Minds" pushes Parasytic to the forefront of Richmond’s underground. Featuring members of Alabama Thunderpussy, Hail!Hornet and Cannabis Corpse, these Virginia vets chug crust and piss metal. Any patch wearing fans of Tragedy, Municipal Waste and Victims should do themselves a favor and put down their PBR to blast this shit! less.
After a long, seasoned punk rock history, the Eunuchs are a band again, but like everything in the world of Eunuch – be it a snare drum head repaired with duct tape or a guitar string held in place by toilet paper – things could fall apart at any moment. So get them while the gettin' is good.
Formed in 2008 by ex-members of MK-Ultra, Weekend Nachos, and Right to Remain, DeKalb's Sick/Tired play a punishing brand of Grindcore that is heavily influenced by Hardcore/Punk mixed with Powerviolence. Their 1st LP "Highlife" was released in 2010 on To Live a Lie Records. To date they have released 5 records to include an LP, two 7" eps, and two split eps. In 2011 they parted ways with their original vocalist and added A. Jennings from Winters in Osaka. They are currently working on their 2nd full length LP to be released in Fall of 2012 on Cowabunga Records.
